Communication is a necessity that oftentimes is complicated. There can be communication barriers even when people speak the same language. For people who are hearing impaired, communication barriers are faced every day as society is built around the ability to communicate by vocally speaking and aurally listening.

Muharrem is a deaf man living in Instabul who received a huge, heartwarming surprise when his whole neighborhood learned sign language to communicate with him. Muharrem’s reaction is genuine and the feeling of togetherness brought about by communication is empowering.

So many of us take abilities for granted. Today I urge you to take a step back and think about all of the abilities that your body has given you. Don’t take them for granted, cherish them, and cherish any disabilities you may have, too. Embrace yourself as you are, exactly the way you are supposed to be.
